Package : sup-mail
Vulnerability : command injection
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2013-4478 CVE-2013-4479
Debian Bug : 728232

joernchen of Phenoelit discovered two command injection flaws in Sup, a
console-based email client. An attacker might execute arbitrary command
if the user opens a maliciously crafted email.


Sup wrongly handled the filename of attachments.


Sup did not sanitize the content-type of attachments.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.11-2+nmu1+deb6u1.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.12.1+git20120407.aaa852f-1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your sup-mail packages.
